Three Zone Passing Exercise

2) Coach serves ball to either end.
3) Receiving team must connect 5 passes and then swtich the ball to the far end.
4) Defenders send one man in to put pressure, remaining teammates form a flat line and prevent the cross ball from reaching the opposite end.
5) If defenders prevent the cross, they take the attackers zone and those attackers become the defenders.
